administration and rosa brooks, former assistant secretary of defense in the obama administration, pretty perfect, guys. rosa, i want to start with you on this issue of language and what this country calls a terror attack and what it doesn't. obviously it appears after benghazi it was not as clear as it was today. i wanted to play an exchange that happened between state department spokesperson victoria nuland and a reporter a week after the attack on the american consulate in benghazi. >> does the united states government regard what happened in benghazi as an act of terror? >> again, i'm not going to put labels on this until we have a complete investigation. okay? >> you don't regard it as an act of terrorism? >> i don't think we know enough. i don't think we know enough. >> all right, here, rosa, is what jay carney said today about the attack in turkey. >> a suicide bombing on the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror, it is a terrorist attack. >> it seems like that's a pretty direct reaction to the controversy about benghazi. >> i think that's absolutely right, erin. i thin

to refer to her, this statue, forever ordains rosa parks' status as an icon. >> reporter: now more than 50 years after her famous bus ride, her statue unveiled in the u.s. capitol, putting rosa parks in the company of america's greatest heroes. >> the child rosa parks was shy, reserved, at least on the outside. >> on an otherwise ordinary evening, in montgomery, she did the extraordinary by simply staying put. >> the driver got up from his seat to insist that she give up hers, she would not be pushed. >> rosa parks would have turned 100 years old this month, but her legacy, first made on a bus and now cast in bronze, makes her immortal. >> rosa parks' singular act of disobedience launched a movement. the tired feet of those who walked the dusty roads of montgomery helped a nation see that to which it had once been blinded. it has because of these men and women that i stand here today. >> reporter: her legacy also, perhaps, a lesson to the country's leaders today. >> that is why this statue belongs in this hall, to remind us, no matter how humble or lofty or positions, just what it is that

. it hasn't always been a shining moment for rising stars in the past. david frum joins me along with rosa brooks. i'm sorry, this just made me chuckle. david, i started thinking back to bobby jindal in 2009. panned by democrats and republicans alike. people were so nasty. they were picking on the way he walked out to the podium. it was pretty harsh. "the new york times" headline the next day was governor jindal rising star plumets after speech. is this too dangerous for a rising star to take on? >> well, these are big opportunities and there's always a chance of recovery. let's not forget one of the most universally condemned speech of recent times was bill clinton's keynote speech at the 1988 democratic convention when he got a big round of applause when he said in conclusion. he did okay. they nominated him next time and he went on to a pretty successful political career. let's not forget that last time the person who gave the response was paul ryan, who went on to win the republican vice presidential nomination. if you do well, there are opportunities. if you do badly, it's a difficult

, along with rosa brooks from theobama administration. tiger woods, part of the problem? >> the white house was happy to release photographs of president obama are president clinton. they were very happy to release photographs of president obama palling around with john boehner. >> all on the golf course? >> on the golf course. why not a photograph of president obama with notorious philanderer tiger woods. it's an instant 30-second ad. the president is palling around with tiger woods while the country remains mired in an economic morass. i think the public deserves the right to these photographs. >> ed henry issued this statement. a broad cross section of our members with print, radio, online, and tv have today expressed extreme frustration to having absolutely no access to the president this entire weekend. there's a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead, transparency. does the press deserve more? >> every american has a right to know president obama's golf score. this is worth dying for. i think this is ridiculous. i assume pre
